I wanted to read Newton’s biography because I’ve listened to a lecture about him and realized I know little about how Newton made his scientific discoveries.

This book helped me, but it was disappointing how hard it was to read it. It tried to be poetic with a heavy citation of resources from Newton’s age. This gave the book an aura of authenticity and authority, but it also made it hard to understand.
